World Cup winner Sergio Busquets wants to join up with Spain's young players to compete at the London 2012 Olympics.

The midfielder won football's biggest prize with Spain's full national squad this year but says he wants to emulate teammate Xavi Hernandez in playing at a Summer Games.

The Olympic men's football tournament is for players 23 and under but teams are also allowed to field three players over that age. Busquets will be 24 when the competition starts and says his experience could help his country to Olympic gold. The Barcelona player says that the Olympics "is a fantastic experience to live through and if I can lend a hand in any aspect, I would love to do that for the younger lads."
